We got married and honeymooned at the Royal for 12 days this past November and it was the best! We arrived early evening to be greeted with champagne and were quickly checked into our room which was amazing - a swim-up walk out beach front location. We had 31 friends and family in town and we kicked off the fun...

I have never been to a nicer place in my 48 years on earth. My family dragged me here "kicking and screaming" and when we left they had to drag me away "Kicking and screaming". I started each day and ended each night at "The Coffee House" for a mixture of delicious choices served to me with a beautiful smile...

My husband and I came for a week in November. We chose this resort as it was located within walking distance of downtown Playa del Carmen. While we loved walking around town (right outside the front door) we rarely wanted to leave the resort. The service is unrivaled, with staff going above and beyond to meet every request. We felt...

We loved our stay at the Royal, the food was amazing! Asiana was our favorite, the taco bar and tapas restaurant were very good too. We ate at Chef's plate twice, loved Maria's Marie. The Hotel's location is great if you like to shop and go into town. Our room was the best suite we ever stayed in, but we...

I have been to Mexico a few times in the past, but this was my first land trip to Playa. The Royal was recommended by my sister and her husband. My wife and I were celebrating our Honeymoon and we were in awe immediately upon arrival to the resort. We were greeted like royalty even before they asked for our...

My company had our President's Club trip here in early February. The location cannot be beat if you like downtown Playa Del Carmen. You walk out the front door and you are on the main drag. The resort itself has great restaurants, good service and a fun social pool area. The beach is nice and there is a volleyball court...
